CEO Comments

Commenting on the quarter, Mark Clouse, Campbell’s President and CEO, said, “As expected, we had a strong recovery across the business in the quarter with high-single-digit sales growth driven by sustained consumer demand for our brands and significantly improved supply. Our improved supply chain execution along with inflation-driven pricing began to mitigate the margin pressure we have experienced over the last 12 months. While the operating environment remains challenging and we continue to expect significant inflation, our team is executing well, and Campbell is on a much stronger foundation today. Looking ahead, we are raising our full-year fiscal 2022 net sales outlook and reaffirming our prior adjusted EBIT and adjusted EPS guidance reflecting the on-going inflation-driven margin pressure.”

Third-Quarter Results from Continuing Operations

Net sales in the quarter increased 7% versus the prior year to $2.13 billion. Organic net sales, which exclude the impact from the sale of the Plum baby food and snacks business, increased 9%. Inflation-driven pricing and sales allowances of 11% more than offset volume declines of 3%. Despite some retailer inventory rebuild, volume declined in the quarter driven by select supply constraints and price elasticities.

Gross margin decreased to 31.2% from 31.7% last year. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted gross margin increased 90 basis points to 31.5% due to inflation-driven pricing actions, supply chain productivity improvements and cost savings initiatives. This margin expansion represents a gradual recovery of the significant year-to-date impact of increased cost inflation and other macro issues such as labor and materials availability. Volume/mix was unfavorable in the quarter largely due to reduced operating leverage.

Marketing and selling expenses decreased 7% to $188 million driven by lower advertising and consumer promotion expense (A&C). However, marketing and selling expenses remained at expected levels as a percentage of net sales of approximately 9%. Total A&C declined 16% as investments were moderated due in part to the pacing of supply recovery in the current quarter and some on-going materials availability issues.

Administrative expenses decreased 1% to $151 million. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted administrative expenses increased by 3% to $146 million.

Other expenses were $10 million compared to other income of $23 million in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted other income was $6 million compared to $19 million in the prior year. The change was primarily due to income from transition services fees in the prior year.

As reported EBIT increased to $294 million from $272 million in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EBIT increased 23% compared to the prior year to $321 million primarily due to improved adjusted gross margin performance, lower marketing and selling expenses, partially offset by sales volume declines and lower adjusted other income.

Net interest expense was $50 million compared to $53 million in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability in the current year, adjusted net interest expense was $46 million compared to $53 million in the prior year reflecting lower levels of debt in the current year. The tax rate was 23.0% compared to 24.2% in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, the adjusted tax rate decreased 160 basis points to 22.9% from 24.5% due to state tax law changes in the prior year.

As reported EPS from continuing operations increased 15% to $0.62 per share compared to $0.54 per share in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EPS from continuing operations increased $0.19, or 37%, compared to the prior year to $0.70 primarily reflecting the increase in adjusted EBIT, lower adjusted net interest expense and the benefit of lower weighted average diluted shares outstanding.

Nine-Month Results from Continuing Operations

Net sales were $6.58 billion, flat to the prior year. Organic net sales, which exclude the impact from the sale of the Plum baby food and snacks business, increased 1% as inflation-driven pricing and sales allowances offset volume declines stemming from supply challenges.

As reported EBIT decreased 12% compared to the prior year to $993 million. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EBIT decreased 7% to $1.03 billion compared to the prior year, reflecting sales volume declines, lower adjusted other income and increased adjusted administrative expenses, partially offset by lower marketing and selling expenses and improved adjusted gross margin performance.

Net interest expense was $143 million compared to $162 million in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability in the current year, adjusted net interest expense was $139 million compared to $162 million in the prior year reflecting lower levels of debt. The tax rate was 22.2% compared to 25.9% in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, the adjusted tax rate was 22.3% compared to 24.1% in the prior year, primarily due to the favorable resolution of several tax matters in the first quarter of this fiscal year.

The company reported EPS from continuing operations of $2.18 per share compared to $2.36 per share in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EPS from continuing operations decreased 2% compared to the prior year to $2.28 per share primarily reflecting the decrease in adjusted EBIT, partially offset by lower adjusted net interest expense, a lower adjusted tax rate and the benefit of lower weighted average diluted shares outstanding.

Cash flows from operations increased from $881 million in the prior year to $1.1 billion primarily due to changes in working capital, partially offset by lower cash earnings. Capital expenditures were $179 million compared to $190 million in the prior year. In line with the company’s commitment to return value to its shareholders, the company paid $340 million of cash dividends and repurchased approximately 2.7 million shares of its common stock at an aggregate cost of $116 million. At the end of the third quarter, the company had approximately $425 million remaining under the current $500 million strategic share repurchase program and approximately $173 million under its $250 million anti-dilutive share repurchase program.

Cost Savings Program from Continuing Operations

Through the third quarter, Campbell has achieved $840 million of total savings under its multi-year cost savings program, inclusive of Snyder’s-Lance synergies. Campbell remains on track to deliver savings of $1 billion by the end of fiscal 2025.

Full-Year Fiscal 2022 Guidance

Campbell is raising its full-year fiscal 2022 net sales guidance to reflect year-to-date performance, expectations of continued strong demand for its portfolio of trusted brands, and limited price elasticities amidst a heightened inflationary environment, as well as continued supply recovery and improved service levels. Although the company’s third quarter adjusted EBIT margin improved relative to prior year, the company expects core inflation to exceed prior estimates for the balance of the year. The company expects margin pressure for full-year fiscal 2022 relative to the prior year despite ongoing mitigating actions such as net price realization, productivity improvements and cost savings initiatives. Accordingly, adjusted EBIT and adjusted EPS performance are expected to be consistent with the guidance provided on March 9, 2022.

The full-year fiscal 2022 guidance is set forth in the table below:

Note: A non-GAAP reconciliation is not provided for fiscal 2022 guidance as the company is unable to reasonably estimate the full-year financial impact of items such as actuarial gains or losses on pension and postretirement plans because these impacts are dependent on future changes in market conditions. The inability to predict the amount and timing of these future items makes a detailed reconciliation of these forward-looking financial measures impracticable.

The sale of the Plum baby food and snacks business, which was divested on May 3, 2021, is estimated to have an impact of 1 percentage point on net sales in fiscal 2022.

Meals & Beverages

Net sales in the quarter increased 6%. Organic net sales, which exclude the impact from the sale of the Plum baby food and snacks business, increased 9% driven by increases in U.S. soup, foodservice and Prego pasta sauces, partially offset by declines in Canada. Inflation-driven pricing and sales allowances were partially offset by increased promotional spending. Volume decreased primarily due to supply constraints driven by labor and materials availability and price elasticities, partially offset by retailer inventory rebuild. Sales of U.S. soup increased 15% due to increases in condensed soups and ready-to-serve soups, while broth was comparable to the prior year.

Operating earnings from Meals & Beverages in the quarter increased 18% primarily due to improved gross margin performance, partially offset by sales volume declines. Gross margin performance reflected mitigation of on-going inflation with pricing actions, lower other supply chain costs and supply chain productivity improvements. Unfavorable volume/mix, which was largely due to reduced operating leverage, as well as higher levels of promotional spending also pressured gross margins. These results also reflect lower base operating earnings in the prior-year third quarter.

Snacks

Net sales in the quarter, both reported and organic, increased 8% while sales of power brands were up 13%. Snacks sales increased due to increases in salty snacks, primarily Snyder’s of Hanover pretzels and KettleBrand potato chips, as well as in cookies and crackers, primarily Goldfish crackers. Overall inflation-driven pricing and sales allowances and lower promotional spending were partly offset by volume declines. Despite some retailer inventory rebuild, volume declined in the quarter driven by supply constraints based on materials availability and price elasticities.

Operating earnings from Snacks in the quarter increased 25% primarily due to improved gross margin performance and lower marketing and selling expenses, partially offset by higher administrative expenses. Gross margin performance reflected mitigation of on-going inflation with pricing actions combined with the results of supply chain productivity improvements, execution improvements and cost savings initiatives, partially offset by some remaining elevated supply chain costs. These results also reflect lower base operating earnings in the prior-year third quarter.

Corporate

Corporate expense was $53 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2022 compared to expense of $14 million in the prior year. Corporate expense in the third quarter of fiscal 2022 included pension actuarial losses of $16 million, costs of $6 million related to cost savings initiatives and unrealized mark-to-market losses on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges of $5 million. Corporate expense in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 included costs of $13 million related to cost savings initiatives, unrealized mark-to-market gains on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges of $22 million, and pension actuarial gains of $4 million.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Third Quarter Ended May 1, 2022

Campbell Soup Company (the “company”) uses certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission in certain communications. These non-GAAP financial measures are measures of performance not defined by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and should be considered in addition to, not in lieu of, GAAP reported measures. Management believes that also presenting certain non-GAAP financial measures provides additional information to facilitate comparison of the company’s historical operating results and trends in its underlying operating results, and provides transparency on how the company evaluates its business. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating and planning decisions and in evaluating the company’s performance. Management considers quantitative and qualitative factors in assessing whether to adjust for the impact of items that may be significant or that could affect an understanding of the company’s performance and trends in its underlying operating results. The adjustments on earnings may include but are not limited to items such as: unusual or non-recurring gains or charges; restructuring charges and related costs; actuarial gains or losses on pension and postretirement plans; gains or losses on the extinguishment of debt; gains or losses on divestitures; or impairment charges. Depending upon facts or circumstances, management may change these adjustments. When these adjustments change, the company will provide updated definitions of its non-GAAP financial measures. When items no longer impact the company’s current or future presentation of non-GAAP operating results, the company will remove these items from its non-GAAP definitions.

Beginning in fiscal 2022, the company added to the non-GAAP definition of Adjusted Net earnings the exclusion of unrealized mark-to-market gains and losses on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges until such time that the related exposure impacts its operating results. Since these instruments are used to reduce the volatility of commodity price fluctuations in future periods, this adjustment was made to remove the volatility in current results to facilitate the comparison of the company’s historical operating results and trends in its underlying operating results. Prior periods presented have been adjusted retrospectively to reflect this change.

Organic Net Sales

Organic net sales are net sales excluding the impact of currency, acquisitions and divestitures. Management believes that excluding these items, which are not part of the ongoing business, improves the comparability of year-to-year results. A reconciliation of net sales as reported to organic net sales follows.

Items Impacting Earnings

Adjusted Net earnings are net earnings excluding the impact of restructuring charges and related costs, actuarial gains or losses on pension and postretirement plans, losses on the extinguishment of debt, unrealized mark-to-market gains or losses on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges, a deferred tax charge related to a legal entity reorganization, and gains or losses on divestitures. Management believes that financial information excluding certain items that are not considered to reflect the ongoing operating results, such as those listed below, improves the comparability of year-to-year results. Consequently, management believes that investors may be able to better understand its results excluding these items.

The following items impacted Earnings from continuing operations:

 

(1)

The company has implemented several cost savings initiatives in recent years.

 
 
 

 

In the third quarter of fiscal 2022, the company recorded implementation costs and other related costs of $5 million in Administrative expenses and $1 million in Cost of products sold (aggregate impact of $5 million after tax, or $.02 per share) related to these initiatives. In the third quarter of fiscal 2021, the company recorded Restructuring charges of $2 million and implementation costs and other related costs of $11 million in Administrative expenses and $2 million in Cost of products sold (aggregate impact of $11 million after tax, or $.04 per share) related to these initiatives. In the nine-month period of fiscal 2022, the company recorded implementation costs and other related costs of $10 million in Administrative expenses and $5 million in Cost of products sold (aggregate impact of $12 million after tax, or $.04 per share) related to these initiatives. In the nine-month period of fiscal 2021, the company recorded Restructuring charges of $21 million and implementation costs and other related costs of $21 million in Administrative expenses and $1 million in Cost of products sold (aggregate impact of $32 million after tax, or $.10 per share) related to these initiatives. For the year ended August 1, 2021, the company recorded Restructuring charges of $21 million and implementation costs and other related costs of $28 million in Administrative expenses, $3 million in Cost of products sold, and $1 million in Marketing and selling expenses (aggregate impact of $40 million after tax, or $.13 per share) related to these initiatives.

 
 
 

(2)

In the third quarter of fiscal 2022, the company recognized actuarial losses in Other expenses / (income) of $16 million ($12 million after tax, or $.04 per share). In the third quarter of fiscal 2021, the company recognized actuarial gains in Other expenses / (income) of $4 million ($3 million after tax, or $.01 per share). In the nine-month period of fiscal 2022, the company recognized actuarial losses in Other expenses / (income) of $12 million ($9 million after tax, or $.03 per share). In the nine-month period of fiscal 2021, the company recognized actuarial gains in Other expenses / (income) of $38 million ($29 million after tax, or $.10 per share). The actuarial gains and losses related to the remeasurements of U.S. and Canadian pension plans. These interim remeasurements were each due to lump sum distributions that exceeded or are expected to exceed service and interest costs resulting in settlement accounting for the plans. For the year ended August 1, 2021, the company recognized actuarial gains on pension and postretirement plans in Other expenses / (income) of $203 million ($155 million after tax, or $.51 per share).

 
 
 

(3)

In the third quarter of fiscal 2022, the company recorded a loss in Interest expense of $4 million ($3 million after tax, or $.01 per share) on the extinguishment of debt.

 
 
 

(4)

In the third quarter of fiscal 2022, the company recognized losses in Cost of products sold of $5 million ($4 million after tax, or $.01 per share) associated with unrealized mark-to-market adjustments on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges. In the third quarter of fiscal 2021, the company recognized gains in Cost of products sold of $22 million ($17 million after tax, or $.06 per share) associated with unrealized mark-to-market adjustments on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges. In the nine-month period of fiscal 2022, the company recognized losses in Cost of products sold of $8 million ($6 million after tax, or $.02 per share) associated with unrealized mark-to-market adjustments on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges. In the nine-month period of fiscal 2021, the company recognized gains in Cost of products sold of $39 million ($30 million after tax, or $.10 per share) associated with unrealized mark-to-market adjustments on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges. For the year ended August 1, 2021, the company recognized gains in Cost of products sold of $50 million ($38 million, or $.12 per share) associated with unrealized mark-to-market adjustments on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges.

 
 
 

(5)

In the nine-month period of fiscal 2021, the company recorded a $19 million ($.06 per share) deferred tax charge in connection with a legal entity reorganization as part of the continued integration of Snyder’s-Lance, Inc.

 
 
 

(6)

For the year ended August 1, 2021, the company recorded a loss in Other expenses / (income) of $11 million (and a gain of $3 million after tax, or $.01 per share) on the sale of its Plum baby food and snacks business.
